Richmond County Historical Society
What we are doing:
The intent is to begin gathering testimonials on the pandemic’s effects so we have hired a summer student to research and document the Covid-19 experience primarily locally in Richmond County and also beyond.
This social documentation will be presented on our website, Facebook page and in our archives.
How you can help:
The community is invited to submit letters, photos (people and objects), videos, diaries, poems, drawings, etc. to show the life you are experiencing these days. What does your day look like? Have you developed a new skill such as bread-making or knitting? Have you returned to earlier skills of long ago? What is your child feeling about the change in lifestyle? How is your business affected? How are seniors coping both living at home or in a residence? How has your life changed if you are unemployed? As a health care worker, how are you coping?
Contributions from all ages are encouraged and for further information contact Norma at president @rchs-shcr.ca or firstname.lastname@example.org. We are making history each day; it is important to share our stories to pass on to future generations.
